The children aged between five to ten years were abducted late on Wednesday from Dera Allah Yar area while coming back from school, the report said.

The kidnappers shifted the children to Sindh, it said.

The children, who belong to a small Hindu community living in Dera Allah Yar area of Balochistan, are daughters and sons of well-known Hindu trader and newspaper agent Saith Bhojraj.

Kidnapping for ransom in the area is a serious concern. The region is also considered to be one of the hubs of militants targeting national assets and security forces.
